A 74-year-old man underwent an electrophysiological study due to Mobitz type II second-degree AV block with narrow QRS and frequent junctional extrasystoles. During the study, there were very frequent single His bundle depolarizations with multiple coupling intervals that reproduces the ECG findings. In this case, some His bundle extrasystoles result in retrograde concealed conduction and prolonged local refractoriness in the AV node that manifest as block of the next atrial impulse. This form of presentation is known as Pseudo AV block. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
